Joga: Share Your Passion For Football

Remember I told you about Joga, a community site created by Google and Nike for football fans (I mean soccer fans)? Well, now you don't need an invitation to become a member of Joga. Just go to the site and create an account using your Google login.

The site will ask you a lot of questions about football: what teams you like, favorite players, most embarrassing football moment, favorite other sports. The good thing is that most of them are optional.

But what can you do on Joga? You can create a blog, upload videos, create albums, add bookmarks, add friends based on simple criteria like location, age and join communities. You can also create your own teams, find local fields, and play other Joga teams in your community.

"Whether we've succeeded, of course, will be up to all of you to determine. We look forward to seeing football-crazy people from around the world playing as beautifully as possible at" (Google Blog)
